West Ham manager Slaven Bilic believes Manchester City are struggling for confidence because of Pep Guardiola’s tactics.
“After you have three or four wins on the trot then the opponent may be pressing you but you are not scared,” he told UK newspapers.
“OK, you can occasionally lose the ball but you don’t care. At the end of the day, it’s the plan.
“But after you make some mistakes and it ends in defeat then you think twice about it. You try it again but you are not that confident any more. It’s like a chain.”
